KJV:These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.
All of God’s desires is to see you overflow in his fullness of joy, rest and riches. He wants you to taste him in your prayers and end up seeing and testifying that He is good.
Our God is not a wicked God, he desires more than anything that you are enveloped in the very fullness of joy when you ask and receive it, even when you receive the word and see results.
He went as far as giving you the gift of sonship and grace to come boldly to him as your father, just so that you can feel free to come running to him when things are hard and sweet. God is not only interested in you when you have it all(Rosey, nice and happy), he is also interested in your every pain and tear, thorn and sorrows.
He gave us his words as a weapon against the devil and his spirit as a union with him to communicate with.
Learn to casting all your cares, fears, worries and burdens entrusting them all to him as allowing him take full charge of the situation. All these he did that your joy may be full.
As loving as he is, he still says come to me when you feel like you are at the end of the road and all hope is lost, when you feel heavy burdened and broke He says come and I will give you rest. Come! for I am the prince of peace. Come, and I will give you rest!
I personally have tasted of this dimension of God whereby I simply I go to him feeling down cast, low, disturbed, worried and even burden with alot on my mind and I simply pour all of it on him in Thanksgiving, and sincere prayer or surrender, from then on, I embrace his peace, joy and March forward with a new vibe of freshness. You too can tap from this source continually and enjoy the strength he gives to run the race called life.
God bless you
